Bournemouth University’s vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.
The Faculty has a reputation for producing high quality graduates and world leading research. This is an opportunity to join a buoyant and growing department, which has seen growth in engineering student numbers, significant investment in physical resources, state of the art laboratories and workshops and a growing research profile.
As Lecturer (Academic) in Engineering Design, you will be able to demonstrate emerging evidence of academic excellence through a fusion of education, informed by a developing research and professional practice profile. Enthusiastic about student-centred pedagogy, you will contribute to education delivery, including programme management as required, across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. You will also make a significant contribution to employability, and professional engagement with relevant internal and external organisations, at a regional, national and international level.
You will be qualified to Doctorate level or be able to demonstrate the ability to create and disseminate knowledge at an equivalent level and the capability to convert this knowledge into a doctorate in a maximum of 3-5 years from the date of appointment. You will already be research active and committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement.
Applications are welcome from those with broad experience in engineering design but particular expertise in the areas of multidisciplinary design and engineering projects, applied expertise in 3D/additive printing and knowledge of emerging design tools e.g. artificial intelligence. Membership and/or professional registration of a relevant professional engineering institution would be an advantage.
The department is committed to gender equality and is one of the first departments at BU to achieve an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. We support our academic staff with a rich personal development programme, seed funds for mobility and networking and grant writing support. We have a strong team-based working style, and we support new academics in a friendly and collaborative environment and expect them to be excellent team players and communicators.
For further information and discussion or the opportunity for an informal visit, please contact by email Interim Head of Department, Dr Diogo Montalvao (firstname.lastname@example.org).
BU values and is committed to an inclusive working environment. We seek a diverse community through attracting, developing and retaining staff from different backgrounds to contribute to inspirational learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society. To support and enable our staff to achieve a balance between work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
